Water consumption. Very hard to say. We rarely have full hookups so the family is trained in water consumption, and every so often need a little reminder. To reduce water usage, when washing your hands do not turn the water on, get them wet, lather up the soap, then rinse. We crack the facet to wet the hands then turn it off, or have a small flow of water, lather up, and quickly rinse. Saves a lot of water by not leaving it on. Same for brushing the teeth and washing dishes. I would say we are fairly trained. We have a fairly small FW tank, and shower in the bathhouse. Our 45 gallon tank typically will last us 4-5 days.

When filling my jugs, I place the jug on the ground, use my water bandit on the spigot, and attach a short hose (10”??). The combination allows the water to enter the jug and not spray, all over the place, including my shoes. Back at the camper I put the water bandit on the spout of the jug again with my short hose, then pour it into the gravity fill hole. This gets more water in the tank, less on the ground, my pants and shoes.

I have used the spigots inside the park to fill up my tank if one was near my site. But I would not dream of leaving it hooked up......
